Other than the solar news, wind news, transport news, and climate news I just shared, below is some more environment and cleantech news from the past week or so from around the interwebs.

Note: following this post, I’m actually going to streamline this news roundup process by sharing daily “other cleantech & environment” roundups only in this Google Doc (rather than doing so there and on this CleanTechnica page). Also, I’m not going to share our CleanTechnica stories in that doc, so be sure to check in on CleanTechnica for the top cleantech stories of the day. :D
